Pope Palpatine's Love-in

So the Pope has given his views on what modern love means to all Catholics. Amongst other things it should mean charity and giving to those in need, particularly in the developing world.

I can see it now. Hello 3 year old starving AIDS victim. Take all the love I have but don't expect me to give your parents condoms.

This is exactly why religion is a nightmare, old dudes with not a clue. Since when is it a recent thing that God has been associated with 'hatred and violence'? This has been the problem since religion was invented.

but if you look at it from another angle, he's despairing with the rise in divorces and the sad state of affairs whereby people are getting more calculative - like, if the fella really has got his eyes on me and me only, he ought to prove it by, say buyin me a pink diamond ring. if he can't afford to, i'll tell him that he's not worthy and summat. that's what he meant by unconditional love.

i think.

I'm currently reading Angels and Demons by Dan Brown and it's about the Illuminati. They're a bunch of nice healthy catholic hating people who want to blow up the Vatican.
Seeing as I'm married to a catholic from an Irish family I can say without shadow of a doubt that the Catholic church needs to move forward from the 18th century.

'B', He may preach unconditional love but it's a case of 'do-as-I-say'. His views on homosexuality are proof of a man who doesn't practice what he preaches.

Mick, good book but not as good as the hype I felt. still, wouldn't it be good if all this was true?

if you looked closely at the catholic social teachings in the cathicism you would sea everything we teach is of love. marrage is the onyl place for sexual relations. we are called to lived chase lives and only be with the one we truly love for who they are not a physical being. on the issue of homosexuals the catholic church does not hate or banish such people, but they simple do not aprove of the life style. someone who is "gay" by choice or bye nature if you beleave eather may be called to something higher. you dont not need to serve God by being with someone else. the catholic church may be old fashoned. but what is wrong with tradition. you still celibrate some holliday dont you?

concerning preasts and other church leaders who supposedly dont know what they are talking about have you ever thought that being selibut may allow you to see things with diffent eyes or maybe its the wisdome with age.

I would be less likely to assume you were a religious bigot if you learnt to spell properly and had the guts to leave your name.
